"Anti-inflation food" ?. Beef Council notes values BOISE -- "Beef. America's favorite food, is also Ihe anti- inflation food of 1974 and for 197.= .'.' says David M i l l e r , c h a i r m a n .

Ihe avera'ge retail price per pound of choice beef was $1.50. he said. In January. 1975, the price is hclow-SI-32. Further evidence of beefs' current favorable prices is nl:(aincd by looking .it the Consumer Price Index maintained by the U.S. Department of Labor. Belween November. 1973, arid Xm-efiihcr, ID7-I.

He said (hat 197-1 was t' record- breaking year of beef production and he fully, expecls 1975 (o top t h a i m a r k hy as much as 1.2 billion pounds. "However," observed Miller. "Ihe callle producer has been caught between rising costs and low or falling live prices for more than If) months. These prices must improve if the producers arc lo survive. 1 ' He said l h a t normal weather in 1975 might improve the grain harvest and thereby help stabilize what, for the cattle industry, has been a roller coaster, hut generally downhill, ride in the marketplace. "Because of e c o n o m i c pressures. Ihe callle industry, like Detroit, is altering its production methods.
